Trivia

Jessica Amlee filmed an alternate opening scene featuring a young Julia sleeping and being terrorized by "They" in her bedroom, in contrast to the theatrical cut which features a young Billy instead. It was cut and reshot after test screenings, and Jessica Amlee only remains in the film via photographs and a short scene featuring VHS footage of a young Julia awakening from her night terrors in a mental hospital.

Goofs

When Julia is in the room at the hospital (doctor's) after she is found in the subway, the window changes. It is perfectly see-through when they pick her up off the floor and put her on the bed and when she goes to get up to look out the door, the window now has what looks like thin bars on it and you can no longer see clearly out of it.

Quotes

Terry: What do you think went through Billy's mind when he did it?
Sam: The bullet.

Alternate Versions

The work print features this alternate ending which is not available on DVD anywhere. When Julia is knocked out in the subway it cuts to 9 months later in a mental hospital. Julia convinces a panel of psychiatrists, including Dr. Booth, that she is cured. She sees one of the monsters climb through an air shaft in the ceiling, but continues to claim that "They" don't exist. She is released and goes home only to set up high-powered lights all over her apartment. The camera pulls out of her bedroom as she sits on her bed. A door creaks open in her darkened hall and it cuts to black. See more »

The theme of this movie is one of men's primal fears: darkness... and what may be in the darkness...
23 September 2006 | by chev-errantSee all my reviews

An excellent little horror-movie. It probably did not too well at the box office (not even with the "Wes Craven Presents" attachment), but this is worthy to check out. Don't expect stupid, obnoxious teenagers who can't act in the leadroles, don't wait for silly, embarrassing one-liners, don't relay on cheap CGI (not even on expensive CGI, for that matter). What we get is a tense horrorthriller, well acted throughout by a cast of fairly unknowns, which relays on atmosphere, minimal special effects and leaving a lot to the imagination of the audience (which, as most of true horror-fans know, can't be beaten by the most expensive and amazing FX). To my opinion, great horrorfilms are those which are taken seriously, by the creators, the actors, by everyone involved. Take a look at Night of the Living Dead (1968), The Exorcist(1973), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Dawn of the Dead (1978), Halloween (1979), The Thing (1982) etc. (to name only a few of 60ties, 70ties and 80ties horror classics). What they have in common is seriousness. They might contain some humour, but it never takes over the movies to a degree that the audience is allowed to lean back in their seats and grab a next handful of popcorn in anticipation of the next shocking sequence... What these movies are capable of is to keep the audience at the edge of their seats, to scare the audience into believing and fearing what its sees and not sees but make believe seeing it) and to make the audience go home afterwards with a feeling of unease. That is what THIS movie does very well: make the audience uneasy, because it deals with a primal fear: darkness and what may be IN the darkness. Its a little gem, and i think it will be considered as a "classic" in years to come.
